First Line Friday – 4.27.18


Hi Everyone! It’s First Line Friday, so grab a book near you and share your first line in the comments below!

Today I’m sharing the first line from a book I recently added to my TBR, Angel Discovered by Kelly Harrel.

Angel Discovered

Here is the first line:

3:30 p.m. The radio switched on. 


Tyler Stevens is firm in his goals—win Best Actor for his new action film, move up in the ranks of Hollywood’s Most Eligible Bachelor, and have any woman he desires. Lauren Drake has her priorities set—serve God, become an elementary school teacher, and marry a nice Christian man. When their worlds collide, Tyler finds himself attracted to this conservative girl despite her refusing his advancements. Lauren is drawn to Tyler although she rejects his worldly lifestyle, wondering if God can change such an arrogant heart. Angel Discovered is a story that reminds us of the power God’s love can have when we allow it to flow through us.

  1. Sounds interesting ~ kind of a contemporary Hollywood version of a fairytale!

    I’m featuring As Bright as Heaven on my blog today, but I’ll share the first line from another on my TBR pile here, Quo Vadis: “Petronius woke only about midday, and as usual greatly wearied.”

  2. Oh, sounds like a good read. Thanks for sharing.

    My TBR pile includes The Theory of Happily Ever After by Kristin Billerbeck. The first line: “Life is filled with irony.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Oh! I haven’t heard of this one. Sounds interesting!

    I’m featuring ‘No Less Days’ by Amanda G. Stevens on my blog today, but right now I’m reading ‘Presumption and Partiality’ by Rebekah Jones–a Pride & Prejudice retelling set in 1930s Arizona!

    The sun beat down cheerfully on that last day of August in the year 1932.

    Have a great weekend 🙂

    1. A 1930s P&P sounds fun and that first line (“beat down cheerfully”) makes me chuckle. I’m picturing a cartoon sun with a mallet in its hands humming a cheerful tune while whacking down the sweaty humans like a giant game of whack-a-mole. LOL

      Thanks for sharing!


  4. Sounds like an interesting story! Thanks for sharing it today.Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Becky Wade’s Falling for You. I’ll share with you here the first line from a book I recently read and enjoyed “Amongst the Roses” by Meghan M. Gorecki
    “Papa’s Home!” A nameless shiver of dread worked its way up Margaret Bryant’s spine, causing her fingers to shake as she checked the chatelaine watch at her waist.”

  5. The book I’m sharing on my blog is Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, but the book I’ll share here is the one I am currently reading called Chateau of Secrets by Melanie Dobson: “Candlelight flickered on the medieval walls as Gisele Duchant stepped into the warmth of the nave.” Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂

  6. Happy Friday! What an interesting story!!

    My FLF comes from a book I’m going to be reading shortly, The Good Daughter by Diane Chamberlain…….

    No one wanted to work with the man in the wheelchair . “There’s something strange about that guy,” one of my fellow students warned me in the hall outside the PT ward. “If they try to assign you to him, say no.”

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!📚😀

  7. Ooh, this sounds like something I’d love to read! Adding it to my never-ending TBR pile.

    I’m featuring “Beneath a Prairie Moon” by Kim Vogel Sawyer on the blog today, but I’m going to share about the book I’m currently reading called “The Story Peddler” by Lindsay A. Franklin.

    Colored ribbons of light poured from my fingers. One strand broke free and soared above the crowd’s head, glowing golden in the afternoon sun.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading! 🙂

    1. Yes, tomorrow is Saturday! Eeek! I have so many things I want to do! I can’t decide if I’d rather hike, craft, sew or read. Unfortunately, I’ll probably wind up cleaning the house. LOL I hope you enjoy your weekend!
      Thanks for sharing!

  9. Happy Friday! I cleaned under my bed and found a slew of books I can share! So this week on my blog I’m sharing “Love Finds you in Revenge, Ohio” by Lisa Harris. I posted the first line in my blog, so I will post the first line from the hero’s POV – “Corbin stared into Catherine’s pale blue eyes that had, years ago, set his heart to racing.”

  10. Happy Friday! My first line is from Miss Wilton’s Waltz by Josi S. Kilpack, which will be released May 1st:

  11. That sounds like a really interesting and captivating story. On my blog, I am featuring Mail-Order Revenge by Angela K. Couch. Here I will share the first line of chapter five from the book I’m currently reading, His Substitute Wife by Dorothy Clark. “‘Thank you.’ Blake looked up and snagged Audrey’s gaze with his. ‘It feels odd, having you pour my coffee.'” Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
